Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Nair and his staff! They truly go above and beyond to help people in need! Dr. Nair keeps very up to date with the latest research and is very intelligent. He is open and honest and a genuine man. I was lucky to have him in my life!
The experience was awful. Never could give a straight answer lied and said I had liver cancer and if I didn't take chemo every week that I would die. Went and got a second opinion and it didn't spread to the liver and didn't have it as bad as he said and the other people I talk to have said he has also told them they had liver cancer. Sounds fishy to me. Didn't give me the chemo pills like he was suppose to during the 2 weeks I didn't have chemo and didn't do my scans when he was suppose to during the time to see how my treatments were doing to treat the cancer and to see if it was spreading the 6 months I was getting treatment from him he was suppose to give me 2 scans to check up on things and I only gotten 1 and that's before I started chemo treatments. He was unprofessional and when u asked questions he would talk to you like you were stupid . he also said I needed to take iron because my iron was low which of course it would be low because your taking treatment he prescribed me it on pills told me take 2x daily until gone and I almost died from iron overdose and he stated ( I DIDNT KNOW YOU COULD OVER DOSE ON IRON PILLS!) REALLY YOUR A DOCTOR YOU SHOULD KNOW THINGS LIKE THIS!
